Dulwich Hill Twilight Economy gets a boost

We all know Dulwich Hill by day. There is good coffee, artisan handicrafts, curated cheese platters and village made pickles…..now, nighttime tells a different story. Craft beer tasting paddles with locally produced bangers, a piano bar with mezze plates and pop up gallery events, gourmet burgers and authentic Asian street food, the Dulwich Hill nighttime economy has been kick started this spring to give locals even more without leaving the suburb.
